Raising a Money Savvy Generation, Money Savvy Piggy Bank Review & Giveaway!


As parents we always struggle with the easiest ways to teach our kids about money regardless of whether or not we ourselves our good with it.  Our oldest son who's 4 started getting an allowance when he turned three and was saving more than spending so it seemed like we were off to a good start.  When given the opportunity to review the Money Savvy Piggy Bank, it was the perfect opportunity to teach him about spending, saving, investing and donating.



Each Money Savvy Piggy Bank is separated into four chambers, each emptying through a separate foot making it easy to access the spending money and leaving the rest alone. 

Our kids have always been good at donating material possessions, but we never really discussed monetary.  Right now, I think he's still a little young to understand investing, so we're just letting that one build up.  Each week when he's given his allowance of $4, $1 for each year of age, he gets $2 for spending, and then can choose to split the remaining $2 into savings, donations, and investing.  For the most part, he's been opting for the savings because at the end of each month he gets to take a trip to the bank with dad to deposit his savings into his very own savings account which he thinks is pretty cool.  We're hoping that by starting him at such a young age that he'll be money savvy when he grows up and the Money Savvy Piggy Bank is definitely an easy step in teaching about finances.  We don't expect him to understand everything right now, but we can say that he's interested in it enough to make his 2-year old brother rather jealous!  Soon we'll be ordering one for him too so that he can begin his money education too!

If you're looking for an ideal gift this holiday season that will be carried forward as your kids or grandkids grow up, the Money Savvy Piggy Bank is definitely an amazing tool for teaching today's kids how to handle their money!

Buy It!
You can order your own Money Savvy Piggy Bank, Cow, or Football online for $16.99!

For my four year old grandson, I would like to also have the Money Savvy Cow as it is clear, and he could see the money growing.
